From General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the first 'local' Commander-in-Chief of the Pakistan Army, and Field Marshal Ayub Khan, who also imposed Pakistan's first martial law, almost all army chiefs have been embroiled in some sort of controversy. Be it internal differences between the government and the Prime Ministers or direct support of the government, the name of the Army Chief has always been associated with military affairs as well as politics and government.

In place of Pakistan Army Chief General Bajwa, new Army Chief Lt. Before the appointment of General Asim Munir, 6 names were sent to the Defense Ministry by the Army Headquarters. According to the system, the Defense Ministry can review the names before presenting them to the Prime Minister, but usually, this does not happen and the Ministry only acts as a mediator between the Army and the PM. Also, according to some reports in the Pakistani media, the retiring army chief also gives informal advice to the prime minister about his successor.
The names of Lieutenant General Asim Munir, Sahir Shamshad, Azhar Abbas, Nauman Mahmood, Faiz Hamid, and Muhammad Aamir were included in this list.
